15,000 march in anti-Islamization PEGIDA demonstrations in Dresden

OWoN: Now the Germans are waking up to the sheer scale of immigration as we all are. We have to stop this mass invasion of illegals. It is crippling nations resources. The social integration problems are chaotic.




15,000 march in anti-Islamization PEGIDA demonstrations in Dresden

15,000 people have marched through the eastern German city of Dresden in an anti-Islamization demonstration. The march was the largest yet for the far-right populist PEGIDA movement.

A record number of demonstrators turned out on Monday to march in support of the far-right populist PEGIDA group. The name loosely translates to "Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West."

"The people are with us!," the group's founder Lutz Bachmann shouted at the crowd. Monday's turnout was 50 percent greater than that of a week ago. The rallies started in October in response to clashes between Kurds and Sunni Muslims over the West's intervention in Syria.

But the nationalist group has largely been protesting over the immigration system in Germany, which has become Europe's number one destination for asylum seekers - whose lands of origin include Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, as well as several African and Balkan nations.

The emergence of the movement has stunned politicians, one of whom - Ralf Jäger, the Social Democratic (SPD) interior minister for North Rhine Westphalia state - described PEGIDA's members as "neo-Nazis in pinstripes." While some neo-Nazis have been seen among the crowds, those gathered have mostly been disenchanted citizens.

More than 1,200 police kept a close watch on the non-violent crowds. Nearby, about 6,000 counter-protesters - made up of civic, political and church groups - marched under the banners "Dresden Nazi-free" and "Dresden for All."

Chancellor Angela Merkel condemned the wave of PEGIDA marches and cautioned Germans against falling prey to xenophobic "rabble rousing."

An associated right-wing BOGIDA protest took place in the western city of Bonn on Monday. While approximately 300 of the group's supporters turned up, they were met by 2,000 counter demonstrators who called for peace and tolerance.

The BOGIDA demonstrators were unable to start their march, as they were blocked by police and the counter demonstrators.

  2. Our dear Merkel is showing her true colors as she goes against the will of her people. She said:

    1. German people-power response is fast in Germany. They will force something soon to make politicos act so they don't get voted out. Wait until the populace finds out 40% of their pensions in Germany are GONE!! The cookie-jar has already been raided under Merkel.
